Weekend Poetry Reading – Mary Jean Chan

Recently I had the great pleasure of being one of the poets reading for the launch for Lodestone Poets at Waterstones on Tottenham Court Road. It was a packed house as rightly so as the poets included Tamar Yoseloff, Steve Kendall, Mina Aiddo, Glyn Maxwell, Jacqueline Saphra and Mary Jean Chan. It was the day after the publication of Mary Jean’s pamphlet ‘a hurry of english’, with its exquisite poems.

You can read five of them on her website including // shortlisted for the Forward prize for best single poem but I’d recommend that you buy the pamphlet and read all of her poems.
